It’s been so long since I’ve written one of these posts but they are back! Every Sunday, I’ll be giving a kind of summary of my week (the good, the bad and the ugly!) which I really like doing as it acts like a diary for me and is something I can look back on. It’s been a fun week(ish – I’ve added a few days on since it was Christmas & New Year!). I’ve really loved Christmas this year and I’m going to do a separate post showing you the amazing teas/tea accessories that I was so lucky to get this year. I think my Tea of the Month posts are about to get very interesting indeed…
Boxing Day Lush Haul (and then I went back on the 27th…)
Boxing Day for me is all about Lush and I’m on a mission: to get as many of the Christmas items that I love into my basket!The weather was awful (not sure what I was expecting) when I woke up at half 7 so I decided to wait until the 9am sale started online; both my ipad and laptop were at the ready! Although it didn’t start at 9am and the page was exactly the same – GRR! I threw on my coat, grabbed my bag and keys. Destination: Lush!
I got there just after half 9 and it was INSANE! I could barely move and the queue had doubled around the entire store. I managed to get a couple of the little gift sets that I wanted and then stocked up on so many bath bombs and bubble bars! Then I braved the queue to the till which I stood in for about 45 minutes – crazy! I visited a smaller Lush store the next day and picked up two bottles of Rose Jam which is by far my favourite shower gel just now. It smells of rose (obviously) but it’s not too overpowering and yep, I’m beyond happy with my purchases.
And my room literally smells like a Lush shop now – another benefit of having an en suite!
Please, No More Sweets!!
I am sick of looking at sweets and my body is craving yummy green veggies – it needs a bit of a rest after the festive season. I hate to even think about how many Quality Street and Ferrero Rocher have passed my lips and somehow telling myself ‘It’s Christmas!‘ is meant to make everything okay. I still have tubs of sweets, boxes of biscuits and full cakes left! Why?! Who the hell did I think I was feeding?! Some of them were gifts which I will enjoy, but definitely with other people because honestly, I can’t take any more! Pass me the broccoli!
My Challenge for January
In my last post, My 12 Monthly Challenges
, I mentioned the fact that making New Years Resolutions don’t really work for me at all and I never stick to them for long. In the post, I mention the fact I have set myself 12 challenges for 2016
and January’s is no tv, movies or Youtube; so far so good! I’ve been listening to podcasts (Serial is amazing, everyone should listen to it), reading more and writing letters I have been meaning to for some time.
I’m not saying it is easy (a Saturday night in not having the TV on isn’t exactly a world of fun) but I am starting to realise how much I have a TV on as a force of habit and just for background noise that I don’t really pay that much attention to weirdly enough. I do miss Youtube though and I still have a long way to go. Oh dear..
I really want to know what you’ve been up over Christmas & New Year! Please leave a comment below or tweet me @thingsarahloves. Hope you all have a wonderful 2016!!
